STOKES SEED FARMS COMPANY, Growers 
Windermoor Farm : : Moorestown, New Jersey 



THE A. B. C. OF STOKES SEEDS 



Where is Windermoor Farm, — home of Stokes Seeds ? 

It is adjacent to Moorestown in New Jersey, ten miles east of 
Philadelphia, in the heart of fertile Burlington County. The doors 
of welcome are always open and as we are easy of access by motor 
car, train or trolley, the farm is often visited. A cordial reception 
awaits everyone. 

How long have Stokes Seeds been planted ? 

For 44 years, during which time millions of dollars worth of 
vegetables have been grown from them. 

How are Stokes customers guaranteed a square deal ? 

By the solid reputation of our company for fair dealing. Francis 
C. Stokes, the president and general manager, always stands ready 
personally to adjust any errors. 

What safeguards are put around Stokes Seeds ? 

Inspection of growing seed crops, trial grounds, a greenhouse 
for winter trials and a seed testing laboratory. We will gladly send 
samples for inspection and private testing. 

Are Stokes Seeds sold at fair prices ? 

Our answer is that we respectfully suggest comparison of our 
prices with those currently demanded by firms you are willing to 
buy from. 

What are Stokes Standards ? 

They are special strains of seed which we believe to be the most 
perfect that money can buy. You will find many stocks offered at 
lower prices than our Stokes Standards but cannot find any of a 
superior quality even at higher prices. 

Where is the order sheet? 

There are two, both to be torn from the book before being 
filled out. The one on page 29 is for a general list of requirements. 
The one on page 3 1 is for those who order nothing but Stokes 
Standards.

"Plow Deep While Sluggards Sleep." 

— Benjamin Franklin, 



Your success in market gardening is based on your ability to 
grow vegetables that are consistently, week by week, better than 
those of your competitor. To know the mechanics of gardening is a 
prime necessity if this result is to be accomplished but unless the seeds 
which you plant are what they should be, your chances of success in 
the keenly competitive years that lie ahead, will be seriously jeop- 
ardized. 

For a long time there has been a cry among vegetable growers 
for better seed, for stocks which could be depended upon in all ways. 
To help meet this demand we have brought back the old Stokes Stand- 
ards which were well known to market gardeners in pre-war days. 

The elevation of a strain of seed to that of a Stokes Standard 
indicates that it has passed the rigid requirements of type, germination 
and stability of growth, and that under normal growing conditions it 
will produce uniformly true specimens. As such they are of special 
interest to those gardeners who strive for strict uniformity of product. 
The business honor of our company is pledged to maintain the in- 
tegrity of the Stokes Standard. Our forty-four years' experience is 
placed at your service.

VEGETABLES 



There are only 170 varieties of vegetables listed in this catalog. This number, 
as contrasted to an average of over 480 varieties carried by each of five of our 
representative competitors, throws light on the general policy of our company. We 
have aimed to concentrate attention on a restricted list, for in this way closer atten- 
tion can be given individual varieties. We believe this catalog will be unusually 
easv to order from and that vou will find it to be strong by its very simplicity. —

WASHINGTON ASPARAGUS ROOTS 

(Stokes Standard) 

A Rust Resistant Strain surpassing all others in value. 

This strain, which is the result 
of ten years' work by scientists 
of the Department of Agricul- 
ture, is already in such great 
demand that we believe it is des- 
tined to supersede all other va- 
rieties and so-called varieties. 
Washington is a highly rust- 
resistant strain, vigorous and 
high yielding. The pedigree of 
our stock may be traced back to 
the best plants found in a ten 
years' search among millions of 
asparagus plants which were 
tested. By best we mean those 
plants that have produced off- 
spring which were uniform rust- 
resistant, high yielding, of large 
size and rapid growth, all of 
which indicates tenderness and 
that in turn indicates greater 
market value. Argenteuil, Pal- 
metto and Reading Giant were 
not found of sufficient uniform- 
ity to justify their adoption as a 
basis for breeding work. 

An asparagus bed is a perma- 
nent investment. Growers should 
not be satisfied, therefore, with 
anything but the best obtainable. 
The original investment of an 
asparagus plantation is compar- 
atively small when it is consid- 
ered that at least eight succes- 
sive years will come from it. On 
advice from asparagus experts in 
the Bureau of Plant Industry we 
are listing one-year-old roots 
only, as these have proven to be 
the most practical size for trans- 
planting. See Farmers Bulletin 
Xo. 829, U. S. Department of 
Agriculture. Our supply of roots 
is limited and Ave reserve the 
right to limit the number which 
any one customer shall purchase. 
Price of roots 100 $1.75, 1000

tomer's expense, no charge for

ROUND POD KIDNEY WAX (x %) 



BEANS 

Henderson Bush Lima. D°wa ft 

Sieva is the common synonym. The 
most desirable of the small seed bush 
lima type. Height of plant about 14 
inches. Compact, bushy, reasonably 
hardy and moderately productive. Pods 
are about 3 inches long, containing 
from 3 to 4 beans which are of good 
quality. Ot., 30c; pk., $2.25; bu., $8.00. 

Fordhook Bush Lima. 7 T 5 "7i\ 

the most productive variety of any 
bush lima and because of the long at- 
tractive pods, which grow to a length 
of 4% inches, containing 5 or more 
large beans of excellent quality, they 
have become the most important bush 
lima for all truck growers. Ot., 40c; 
pk., $3.00; bu., $11.00. 

Challenger or Dreer Improved 

pi 85 Days. This variety de- 

I Oie. velops larger pods than the 
original Dreer Pole Lima from which 
it came. It is very vigorous in its 
habit of growth and extremely produc- 
tive. The pods are 4 inches in length, 
broad, straight, flat and usually six 
seeded. This is perhaps the most pop- 
ular pole lima bean at the present time. 
Ot., 35c; pk., $2.50; bu., $9.00. 



Ford Mammoth Podded Pole. 



90 Days. Introduced by Johnson & Stokes in 
1889. The pods are longer than any lima bean 
grown in the eastern states, usually attaining a length of six inches and containing 5 or 6 
flat beans of excellent quality. Ot., 35c; pk., $2.50; bu., $9.00. 

f"i»«f ^»H«incrl«acc 45 Da y s « Introduced by Johnson- & Stokes in 1898. Unquestion- 
vslaill kJUTIOglcbd. ably the most satisfactory stringless bean of the green pod type 
that has yet been introduced. It is very productive, developing round pods about six 
inches in length, dark green in color, brittle and absolutely stringless. The importance 
of this bean on the produce markets is increasing annually. More and more buyers are 
insisting upon stringless varieties. Color of seed yellow-brown. Ot., 35c; pk., $2.50; 
bu., $9.00.

Color of seed gray-yellow. Ot., 30c; pk., $2.25; bu., $S.OO. 



Round-Pod Kidney Wax. 



O ^ Jj Valonfino 42 Days. This variety matures in quicker time than any bean 
1XCU V dieniine. which we offer. Pods are slightly smaller than Black Valentine, 
round, somewhat stringy, curled and of good quality if gathered when young. Ot., 25c; 
pk., 81.85; bu., $7.00. 

Rlarlr Valpntmo 45 Days. A variety recommended only for long distance ship- 
UlcKLK. " ttienillie. ments, not desirable for truck growers who sell their own pro- 
duce, for it is not a stringless variety. The pod is long, oval and reasonably straight. 
Ot., 35c; pk., $2.50; bu., $9.00. 

45 Days. Introduced by Johnson & Stokes in 1900. 
We recommend this without hesitation as being the 
best of the round podded wax sorts. The long, curved, round pods are brittle and string- 
less. Their quality is excellent. Ot., 35c; pk., $2.50; bu., $9.00. 

Imrii>AVA(1 p n U on Wav 40 Days. This variety differs from the old Golden Wax 
improvea ViOlueo VV.&X. j n that the pods are slightly stouter, flatter, straighter 
and longer pointed. The dried seeds are marked with brown spots instead of purple. 
The light yellow pods are stringless and of reasonably good quality. The picking season 
is short. Ot., 30c; pk., $2.25; bu., $8.00. 

40 Days. One of the most popular wax beans, pro- 
ducing pods 6 inches long, very straight, uniformly 6 
seeded, bright yellow in color, decidedly stringy and of rather poor quality. It is also 
sometimes susceptible to anthracnose in wet seasons. Regardless of certain weak points, 
this bean is perhaps more largely planted commercially than any other wax variety. 
Ot., 25e; pk., $1.85; bu., $7.00. 

Wavrlw^ll KiAnt^xr Wav 45 Days. A popular wax podded bean, the plant of 
VY til U well rviUIiey VV ax. which makes a growth of about 14 inches. The pods 
are about 6 inches in length, slightly curved, flat, almost stringless and of very fair 
quality. Ot., 35c; pk., $2.50; bu., $9.00.

CROSBY EGYPTIAN (x%) 



Crosby Egyptian 
(Stokes Standard) . 

45 Days. This is a special 
strain of seed grown from 
roots selected for their 
uniformity of type and 
rich dark color. The se- 
lection is also made for a 
small top, which makes it 
especially desirable for 
cultivation in cold frames. 
Those planters desiring 
perfection in early and 
main crop beet should sow 
Stokes Standard Crosby 
Egyptian. Oz., 15c; % lb., 
40c; lb., $1.50; 10 lb., $14.00. 



Crosby Egyptian. 

45 Days. This, our regular 
strain of Crosby Egyptian, 
is suitable for all general 
planting work. However, 
the tops will be larger and 
the roots will not be quite 
so uniform. Oz., 10c; y* lb., 
15c; lb., 40c; 10 lb., $3.80. 



Faflir FVlir»c«k 50 Days. This is one of the favorite second early varieties. The 
H>ariy dClipse. root is globe shaped, bright red in color and 2*4 inches in diameter. 
The interior is bright red zoned with pinkish white. This variety is also recommended 
for trenching purposes. Oz., 10c; % lb., 15c; lb., 40c; 10 lb., $3.80. 



Detroit Dark Red. 



50 Days. A variety very largely used by market gardeners 
and canners. It is almost globe shaped, about one-third of 
the root growing above ground. The interior is a beautiful red. Oz., lOe; *4 lb., 15c; 
lb., 40c; 10 lb., $3.80. 



Racfian i-Ialf I r\nrr 60 Days. This variety is grown especially for storage purposes

zoned with lighter red. Quality is good. Oz., 10c; % lb., 15c; lb., 40c; 10 lb., $3.80. 

I nntr riai»lr 60 Da y»« A variety recommended for fall and winter use. It 

l-.Ullg L/drK DIOOa. -will develop a length of six inches if the soil is properly culti- 
vated in advance. The outside color is a rich blood red with no contrasting zone colors. 
Oz., 10c; Y* lb., 15c; lb., 40c; 10 lb.. $3.80. 

New Century (Stokes Standard). A * ^fJTSd'^iiS? 

know of no superior to Xew Century. "We claim that it is the sweetest in flavor at all 
stages of growth and its green top will be found more delicious than either spinach or 
swiss chard. The roots may be safely kept throughout the winter if properly stored. 
The fact that the beet does not develop a woody fiber no matter what its size, is greatly 
in its favor. Xew Century may be planted to advantage two or three times during the 
season from April until late in June. The demand for this beet can be developed on any 
market. Oz., 20c; % lb., 60c; lb., $2.00; 10 lb., $19.00. 



SWISS CHARD 



Giant Lucullus. 



70 Days. This is the most satisfactory variety for general use. 
Chard is becoming more and more a commercial product for 
market gardeners, for its cultivation is very simple and the demand for it is increasing. 
The strain which we offer is of very high quality. Oz., 10c; *4 lb., 20c; lb., 50c; 10 lb., $4.80.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS 

This fall vegetable is coming- to be more and more popular on the commercial produce 
markets. It is grown for the globular buds or sprouts produced along the stout upright 
stem. In its seedling stage it closely resembles cabbage. The axillarv buds, instead of 
remaining dormant, as is the case in common cabbage, develop into miniature heads very 
similar to cabbage, being about one inch in diameter. The culture of the vegetable is 
very similar to that of late cabbage. Care should be taken to break down the lower 
leaves in the early fall. The stock which we offer is a good commercial strain Oz.. 20c:

poses for outdoor cultivation in the 
early spring. The roots will attain 
a length of about 3 inches. They 
are reddish orange in color. The 
tops are small. As is the case with 
other quick-growing root crops, it 
soon passes the edible stage and, 
therefore, must be gathered prompt- 
ly on maturing. Oz., 10c; % lb., 20c;

Our standard strain has been se- 
lected for uniformity of the roots. 
It is nearly two weeks earlier than

Golden Self-Blanch- 
ing (Stokes Stand- 

ai> f]\ 115 days. Because 
of the importance 
of this variety to commer- 
cial g- r o w e r s, we offer 
proven stock only. By this 
we mean seed that has 
been carried over for one 
year and tested commer- 
cially and found to be fully 
up to specifications. Our 
standard strain is a very 
vig-orous grower and for 
this reason is not suscept- 
ible to blight. It is of good 
eating and keeping quality, 
the heavy solid stalks add- 
ing greatly to its value. 
Oz., 70c; % lb., $2.50; lb., 
$10.00. 

Easy Blanching 
(Stokes Standard). 

125 days. Since the intro- 
duction of this type of cel- 
ery nine years ago, there 
have been many different 
strains and names for it. 
Of some the quality has 
been very good, but of 
many it has not been what 
it should have been. Ow- 
ing to the importance of 
this variety to the com- 
mercial celery grower, we 
have made arrangements 
for a seed supply which we 
believe is unsurpassed by 
any offered in this coun- 
try. From every point of 
view our stock will be con- 
sidered one of the most 
valuable ever offered. The 
stalks are full hearted and 
of a light golden color. 
They will blanch very 
quickly with either boards 
or paper. Easy Blanching 
will mature just after 
Golden Self-Blanching has 
been harvested. We cannot 
speak too highly of this 
strain. Oz., $1.35; % lb., 
$5.00; lb., $20.00. 

125 Days. A variety of beautiful appearance because of the con- 
trasting- white and green color of the leaves but, nevertheless, of 
rather poor eating qualities. It is rather slender in stalk formation. In order to give 
it the very best appearance the plants should be artificially blanched before being offered 
for sale. Oz., 20c; % lb., 60c; lb., $2.00. 




GOLDEN SELF-BLANCHING (x l/ 3 ) 



White Plume. 



Columbia. 



Winter King. 



130 Days. This variety resembles Golden Self-Blanching in many par- 
ticulars, maturing soon after that variety. Its round, thick stalks are of 
the Pascal type and when properly blanched the heart is a beautiful light golden color. 
The edible qualities of Columbia are almost unsurpassed. Oz., 25c; *4 lb., 85c; lb., $3.00. 

150 Days. This is one of the most important winter varieties, being 
ready for market shortly after Christmas and, if properly stored, 
will keep all winter. The plants are characterized for their robust growth, tall stalks 
with high joints and a rich light golden heart. The stock offered can be relied upon by 
the most critical growers. Oz., 20c; % ib., 60c; lb., $2.00.

shape, comparatively smooth and of the best quality, averaging about 2y 2 inches in diam- 
eter. It will be found a good keeper if stored under proper conditions. Celeriac should 
receive almost the same culture as celery, being planted in rows 2 feet apart and about 6 
inches apart in the row. Oz., 15c; % lb., 40c; lb., $1.50.

SWEET CORN 

Early Malcolm (Stokes Standard). 2h?"&JSS 3^&S?£gSSS 

in the United States by this company in 1920. One of its parents was Early Malakoff, 
a Russian variety. Early Malcolm opens the sweet corn season two weeks ahead of 
any other standard variety. 3Ialeolm is produced on slender stalks 3% feet high and 
the ears are borne about 20 inches from the ground. By planting May 10th the ears should 
be ready for table use by the Fourth of July. The variety is high in sugar content and is 
delicate to the taste. The ears will average about 6 inches in length. Truck growers 
will do well to look into this variety, at least in an experimental way. Q,t., 35c; pk., $2.60; 
bu., $10.00.

Double-Barreled Best (Stokes Standard). Sit"".? •. ™»,;^r. s &2i 

Early Giant and Stowell Evergreen. It was introduced by Walter P. Stokes in 1913. Its 
name is indicative of its habit of growth, about 70 per cent, of the stalks producing 2 
ears. In this part of New Jersey Double-Barreled Best is an established second early 
variety. Thousands of baskets are taken by motor truck into the Philadelphia markets.

through as Double-Barreled Best or Stowell Evergreen has caused truck growers to aban- 
don it. However, where ear corn is sold by the dozen instead of by the basket, it is very 
desirable. Qt., 25c; pk., $1.60; bu., $6.00.

TOMATO 




BOXXY BEST (x V2) 



Earliana. 



125 Days. Introduced by Johnson & Stokes about 1900 under the name of 
Spark's Earliaba. Immediately after its introduction and to this day the 
tomato has known wide popularity and is looked upon as being the most important in 
the entire list. Its chief merit lies in its earliness of ripening. Its earliness, however, 
has also brought on certain weaknesses in the matter of light foliage, thinness of wall 
of the tomato, lacking solidity as well as its habit of cracking around the stem. Oz., 
25c; % lb., 75c; lb., $2.50; 10 lb., $24.00. 

Rnnnv D ac f 130 Days. This tomato was introduced by the late Walter P. Stokes 
DOnny DCbl. in 1908. Since that time it has been adopted as the most important 
second early tomato by nearly every seedsman in the United States and the value of the 
variety to the tomato growers of this country cannot be estimated. 1922 will be the 15th 
year since its introduction. The variety has been widely disseminated, but unfortunately 
the good name of Bonny Best has sometimes been seriously hurt by unscrupulous seeds- 
men selling inferior stocks. It is by all means the most important single item which 
our company sells and our trade may feel very sure that we recognize this responsibility 
and have taken firm steps to see that the stock was held to the same high standards as 
in the beginning. Customers are urged to come to our Windermoor Farm for the purpose 
of inspecting our Bonny Best Tomato during its growth. August 1st usually finds it at 
the height of its season. 

Bonny Best, when grown under ideal conditions, should produce 10 to 15 tons of to- 
mato per acre, the plants attaining a height of 2 1 - feet. The foliage will be much heavier 
than the Earliana. The fruits will be borne in clusters and will be almost globe shape, 
the structure of the fruit being very distinctive in that respect. They are thicker through 
from top to bottom than the Chalk Early Jewel. Individual vines will often produce as 
many as 150 perfect fruits. When sown in hot beds March 15th there will be ripe fruits 
by July 15th and the crop will bear until September 1st. The intense scarlet color will 
hold both in the interior and exterior of the tomato, which is much more solid than the 
Earliana. Oz., 30c; *4 lb., $1.10; lb., $4.00; 10 lb., $38.50. 



Special Stock Bonny Best. 



For Greenhouse Forcing. (STOKES STANDARD.) 
128 Days. This strain is especially recommended 
for greenhouse purposes, for which it is used in large quantities. It is also purchased 
by many growers for outdoor culture. This strain is the result of years of careful selec- 
tion for earliness and uniformity of size, color and productiveness. It is also reasonably 
resistant to the usual tomato diseases, although we are frank to admit that so far no 
second early tomato has been developed which is entirely free from that danger. We 
offer the strain, however, fully believing that it will give complete satisfaction. Oz., $1.00;

MARKET GARDENERS' WHOLESALE CATALOG, 1922 



VEGETABLE PLANTS 



We are now equipped on Windermoor Farm to produce early vegetable plants in large 
quantities and at right prices. This part of our business, as is the case with all others, 
is operated strictly on the basis that every purchase must be satisfactory to the buyer. 
We, therefore, are responsible that plants arrive in good condition. 

Our supplies are not unlimited and growers who know in advance what their re- 
quirements will be, will do Veil to place their orders so that there will be no disappoint- 
ments. 

Another advantage in buying vegetable plants from our company is the fact that we 
are in a position to know just what seed stocks are used. In this connection we feel, the 
same responsibility toward our trade as we do in making seed sales. 

Owing to weather conditions we ask that we be allowed to use our own judgment 
as to the exact date of forwarding. Local conditions here in New Jersey may be such 
that it would be unsafe to make shipment of perishable stocks for instance in March in 
districts to the south of us. Most of our plant shipments go out late in April and early 
in May. Please do not order varieties except as listed herein. At the prices quoted on 
this page, we expect the purchaser to pay costs of delivery.

THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN ORDERING 

Delivery Charges 

At the close prices quoted in this book we cannot offer to pay delivery charges. 
Except for small orders we recommend express or freight shipments. In the event 
that parcel post shipment is more economical and convenient, approximate mailing 
charge of five cents per pound should be added to your remittance. Your post- 
master will be glad to furnish the exact rate on estimated weight of your order. 

Safe Ways of Sending Money 

Post office or express money order, or personal check have proven the safest 
and most convenient way of remitting. Postage stamps ar satisfactory for small 
amounts. We strongly advise against sending coins in envelopes as they are fre- 
quently lost. 

Canadian Orders 

The rate of exchange at the present time places our Canadian customers at a 
disadvantage. To help relieve the situation Canadian funds will be accepted at par 
until further notice. 

We Are Responsible for Safe Arrival 

Stokes Seed Farms Company is responsible for the prompt, safe and satisfactory 
arrival of all goods furnished from Windermoor Farm. It is our business to see 
that every purchase is satisfactorily completed. 

Responsibility for Crop 

Should there be any disappointment resulting from the seed purchased from 
us, which, in your opinion, can be traced to an inherent weakness in the seed itself, 
we want you to advise us immediately so that we may make such adjustment as is 
right and reasonable. In return we expect our customers to act with equal fairness. 
The Stokes business has been built on the policy that the satisfied, loyal and enthusi- 
astic customer is its best asset. 



Stokes Seeds Are Delivered With Almost Incredible Promptness 

Moorestown is within thirty 
minutes of Philadelphia. We 
have seven inbound mails per 
day, with an equal number of 
outbound. The daily express 
and freight service, per Penn- 
sylvania Railroad, is equally 
adequate. Appreciating the 
necessity for prompt service to 
market gardeners, our organi- 
zation at Windermoor House is 
now prepared to execute seed 
orders within twenty-four 
hours of their arrival. Thus 
an order mailed in Central 
Pennsylvania on Monday 
should be received by us the fol- 
lowing day, in which case the 
seed should be received by the 
customer either on Wednesday 
or at least not later than 
Thursday, depending upon the 
mail service at the other end. 
If this sounds too good to be 
true, try it.

WHEN YOU ARE TOLD There is a seed shortage and please 

to order early, take time to see 
whether there really is a short- 
age. Generally speaking, we 
have not found it. 

That you are buying " tested " , 
seeds, remember that it is the 
most abused word in the seeds- 
man's vocabulary. 

About seeds " from our farms to 
yours," don't take it too literal- 
ly. We admit it is a beautiful 
sentiment. 

The times are hard. Can we not help each other by de- 
termining to contribute some straightforward service as exem- 
plified by honest trading ? There has always been a lot of 
glamour and mystery about seed catalogs which did not belong 
there. Those things don't help much now. As seedsmen, 
we are not oblivious to the difficulties of truckers and market 
gardeners during the past year for we have shared in those 
difficulties. For this reason we believe in putting our cards 
on the table face up.
